I just received a great question from Peter who asked me, “I was diagnosed with aortic valve regurgitation. Can this procedure be done safely using minimally invasive techniques? What questions should I ask to figure out if the surgeon has enough experience and expertise?”
To provide Peter (and you) an expert response, I was very fortunate to interview Dr. Hiroo Takayama, Chief of Adult Cardiac Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, during the American Association for Thoracic Surgery conference.

Many thanks to Dr. Hiroo Takayama for sharing his clinical experiences and research with our patient community specific to minimally invasive aortic valve repair surgery.
